How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

What concerns do you have about the food production after watching this film? What role does the FDA play in regulating the industry? Are all companies fairly depicted? Is all big business bad? Are all farmers victims of the system and do all independent producers practice ethical and sustainable procedures?

How do food standards in the United States compare with other countries around the world? Why do you think many companies refused to be interviewed for the movie? Are there questions or viewpoints this film failed to address?

How, if at all, will this documentary change your eating habits?
